Thankful Thursday is here……………a wonderful opportunity to “say it out loud” as to what you are thankful for. We all have things we’re thankful for but we don’t often formally announce just what those things are. Today we can do that. I’m thankful for my wonderful home, my friends, my Mom and Dad, my health and that I have a “voice” through my blog. How about you? If you want to join the Blog Hop at Brian’s – click his badge and look for the link up and DO IT!
The other part of today is Poetic Thursday and that’s courtesy of my Angel brother Sammy. He visits on Thursdays and brings a poem with him – one he’s written to go WITH the photo inspiration he’s given here the Thursday before. We share what we’ve written and he gives us yet another fun photo to use as inspiration for yet another poem which we will share NEXT Thursday right here!
On with the show……………here’s Angel Sammy’s email from the Bridge:
Hello my friends! It’s poetry time!
I hope you had a good week since we last met and I do hope that you included a bit of time to write a poem based on the photo I gave you last week. Today we’ll do that and you just need to let us know you wrote a poem, give us your link in comments OR write your poem in our comments……AND then I’ll show you the photo I have found for NEXT week’s Poetry Day.
Ready? Let’s go. Here’s last week’s photo AND my poem follows.
“The Blind Date”
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©May 5, 2022
He: Red Her: Green
“The minute she walked in the door I knew we were doomed!”
“The second I saw him I wanted to run out of the room!”
“My friend said she was gorgeous, smart and sweet”
“My friend told me he was well over six feet!”
“I was ready to hug her but she backed away”
“I think he’s had too many beers – he’s starting to sway!”
“This date is doomed – I’m too nervous to be fun!”
“Would it be terribly rude for me to turn around and run???”
Oh dearie me. Mom has told me that blind dates often work out GREAT but this couple looks totally miserable to me……………and I hope they didn’t prolong the agony and just went their separate ways! This was a fun photo – there were a lot of possibilities and directions to go with this one – can’t wait to see where YOU went with your poem!
Here’s your challenging photo for NEXT Thursday………………I actually think we MAY have had a similar photo once but who cares – it will still be fun!
Yep – it’s a doozy……..so let’s see what we can do with this one and share our poems NEXT Thursday – OK? OK! See you then. In the meantime, stay safe, stay happy and healthy and give somebody a hug today. Both of you will feel good!
I am the Angel Poet in the green beret…..and I hope you join me for POETIC FUN each week!
Love and Light, Angel Sammy
Thanks for visiting us Angel Sammy. I sure wish it was in person but some day – I’ll be with you at the Bridge and we’ll be together FOREVER.
